Brunel Institute Donors

Our Sincere Thanks…

Between May 2008 and December 2010, the SS Great Britain Trust launched and ran the highly successful Brunel Institute Founders’ Campaign. The aim was to secure £4.2 million to build the brand new conservation and learning centre and a further £1.8 million towards running costs for the Institute’s education and conservation programmes from 2010 to 2015.

With the first target achieved the Trust is well on our way to providing full funding for the first five years of operation.
